I really want a pair of these babies:

Barefoot running = less running related injuries.

Something to think about for all you runners out there suffering from ITBS and the like.

The ultimate question is: do I have the guts to wear these in public?


  1. Oh! The Vibram FiveFingers! Let me know how it works out for you! $120 ... a little pricey.

    This weekend, I saw a guy running barefoot in the 24 Hour Around The Lake in Wakefield, MA. I don't know what event he was doing. He passed me at least twice on a 3.2 mile loop course, so I suppose he did at least 6.4 miles (and probably quite a bit more).

    Two words: Abebe Bikila!

  2. Yeah, the $120 ones aren't on my list. The $80 ones are more my speed...

    A guy at my WV marathon wore them, and he was flying!
